Thirty years ago we didn’t have the rates of stress, body complexes, depression, food intolerances, cancer and all the other chronic illnesses that we have today.
Have you ever stopped to ask WHY?
Why is it expected that annual cancer cases will rise from 14 million in 2012 to 22 million within the next 2 decades?
Why, in each year, approximately one in every five Australians will experience a mental illness?
Why in the United States was spending for prescription drugs $234.1 billion in 2008 – more than double what it was in 1999 just 9 years earlier?
Why did food allergies among children increase approximately 50% between 1997 and 2011?
We have solid guesses as to why, but we are not here to spout opinions. We’d rather provide everyone with the environment to detoxify your mind and body of the garbage that multi-national corporations and governments feed us every day.
It All Starts With Our Mind.
Every day we are being bombarded and manipulated by media (and governments) to think and behave in ways that we would not have, had we not been subject to their hidden agendas.
Take the media’s influence on women’s mental health for example, or how they play on women’s insecurities in order to sell more product.
What we expose our minds to on a daily basis impacts our thoughts. The thoughts we have determine the emotions we feel (emotions can increase aging), which in turn influences our actions. Repeated actions become habits that have a direct impact on our bodies, which determine the quality and length of our lives.
This is why our first goal is to provide the information and resources for anyone to detox their mind from;
- The media and government.
- The work environment.
- Toxic relationships.
- Grief and loss.
- Negative thoughts and stress.
We have all heard the saying “You are what you eat”, but very few of us manage to apply the principle of healthy eating consistently, because convenience foods and smart marketing make it “appear” easier for us to make poor choices.
Our bodies are the vehicles we all use to navigate the planet (and abroad), so it’s vital we preserve them for the best experience of life as we know it.
Just as the mind impacts the body, the body impacts the mind. If you have ever eaten junk/highly processed food and then noticed that your mood was not the best?
The World Cancer report predicts that cases of cancer are set to rise significantly. Further to this, the report provides clear evidence that taking action on smoking, diet, and infections can prevent one third of cancer cases. Yes, one third! That’s millions of lives saved every year simply by altering lifestyle choices.
And it’s not just food that is impacting your health and mental wellbeing. Our busy, sedentary lifestyles generally mean a decrease in exercise, which also impacts the body and mind. It can be hard to incorporate exercise into your daily routines (I have to admit that we, like many people, get stuck behind a desk for up to 12 hours a day), but it is increasingly important to start making these things a priority.
This increase in sugars and processed food, together with a decrease in physical activity, can have detrimental effects not just to yourself, but to your children. Statistics show that the number of children developing mental illness is also growing rapidly.
Something needs to change. We want to help make it easier for you to make smarter choices for a healthier, happier and longer life.
Love thyself is the brainchild of Samuel Junghenn and Amanda Watson.
Samuel – I have always had a strong interest in psychology and what is it that makes people “tick”, particularly around human potential and why it is that some produce astounding results while others seem to get in their own way.
I have been fortunate enough to have amazing people guide me in both my personal and business life and I want to help, inspire and coach others to dream big and maximise their time on this planet.
Amanda – Working in a professional environment, I see firsthand what the stresses of today’s workplace brings; higher demands and less time to focus on yourself.
With increasing instances of mental and physical health issues so close to home, I am motivated to help educate and inform people of the detrimental effects of their lifestyle choices.
I believe small changes today can make a big difference tomorrow.
It’s our mission to help reverse the effects of the toxicity and disconnection we are subject to each day and positively impact 20 million lives by the year 2020.
We plan on doing this by building a community of people that want to make a difference to the planet and in other people’s lives.
If you would like to join this mission and become a guest contributor then we would love to have you as part of the movement, so contact us here.
To empower women to live confident, present, and healthy lives by embracing a holistic approach to personal wellbeing and happiness.
